Insight: Keiland Williams was virtually non existent Sunday against the Vikings, rushing just three times for a measly five yards. James Davis got more work than expected, but he didn't fare much better with eleven yards on six carries. We might avoid this situation altogether with the Giants on deck.

Insight: Williams' fantasy value lasted about 10 seconds after Ryan Torain was quickly promoted to No. 2 behind Clinton Portis. If Williams passes through waivers, the Redskins could sign him to the practice squad.

Insight: Williams is a solid backup option to have if you are a Clinton Portis owner, but don't jump the gun and play him thinking he will be a stud.

Insight: Given Portis' lackluster season so far, we wouldn't be surprised to see the younger Williams see some work as soon as this week. We all know Mike Shanahan can make a stud out of an unknown, so keep Williams on your radar.
